Grammy Award winner Marc Cohn is coming to Walton Arts Center this week, and we’ve got a pair of tickets to give away to the show.

Cohn is best known for his 1991 hit Walkin’ in Memphis, which netted him the Grammy for best new artist that year.

Since then, he’s released several albums, and collaborated with the likes of David Crosby, Graham Nash, Bonnie Raitt, Roseanne Cash, Shawn Colvin, and Rodney Crowell, Jackson Browne, and others.

Interesting fact, Marc also survived a gunshot wound to the head as the victim of an attempted carjacking in 2005 in Denver. Luckily, the bullet never pierced his skull, and he was able to fully recover.

Tickets to Friday night’s show range from $27-$47, and are on sale now at

They also could be zero dollars, if you’re the winner of the following giveaway. Good luck.
